Residents of two Akron homes were robbed early Wednesday by armed intruders, police said.
Police say the incidents do not appear to be related.
The first robbery happened about 2 a.m. in the 500 block of Brown Street. A man, 32, told police that three men and a woman came inside his apartment and robbed him of $80, athletic shoes and electronics. The victim was hit with a gun at one point. He was treated for his injuries by paramedics.
At about the same time, an armed man forced his way inside a residence in the 900 block of Barbara Avenue. The intruder stole cell phones and a wallet. No one was injured.
